Paul J. Navarro, P.E.
President & CEO
Navarro & Wright Consulting Engineers
As co-founder/owner since 1996, he guides Navarro & Wright’s direction to adhere to its mission. He said he is fortunate to be able to rely on a great management team to implement the firm’s strategic plan, so he can focus on entering new markets, establishing new business and being active in community and professional organizations.
As co-founder, he held the title of president until 2013 and then became president and CEO.
He is very proud to see the firm grow from humble beginnings to one of the largest, multi-disciplined engineering companies in central Pennsylvania. Navarro& Wright has a great team of over 200 professionals servicing various markets and fully committed to consistently delivering high quality services. He said he is very proud of all the staff.
He said if he had to choose one lesson over other important ones it would be perseverance. “The road to success has many pitfalls and/or failures. Each failure provides an opportunity to learn but you must stay on the road and persevere as you pursue your goals and vision,” he said.
Navarro enjoys tennis, golf, traveling and spending time with his family. He also enjoys involvement with non-profit and professional organizations to give back and continue to learn. “I strive to pass on my experience to those that are around me or that will come after me,” he said.
